With the increasing trend in open offices becoming the new method of working, many are beginning to ask “Why?”. There are many benefits of Co-Working that the traditional office space simply can not compare to.
While working at home can sound like an enticing proposition because you don’t need to travel to do work, it can become very lonely. Loneliness can negatively affect your work by causing lack of motivation leading to procrastination. Co-working helps connect you with like-minded people and those connections can motivate and inspire you to keep working
While co-working, your focus is far higher than if you were to work from home. The increased amount of distractions available from home such as family, television, etc can hinder your work. However, at a co-working space these distractions can’t keep you from doing your work..
Building connections is one of the essential steps of becoming involved in the business. Similar to how co-working places combat loneliness, the people you meet can become contacts that can help take your business to the next level. By offering you new ideas or opening up pathways you could not have reached on your own, networking via co-working can fundamentally improve your business.
By co-working, you are reducing the financial burden of renting an office for yourself. You don’t need to spend large rental fees, and you don’t need to come into the office every day. You can create a flexible schedule that works on your time and availability. Co-working spaces are usually open throughout most of the day, meaning you don’t need to come in at strictly assigned times.
